Comment of the Day: Go Fast, Go Slow, Go Astros!

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning or afternoon from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

Not everyone agreed with John Royal's take that the Astros will do better if they stay away from the quick fix enabling them to win at least some games each year and instead pull for the fences with a plan to build a team that could be developed to World Series status in a few more years.

Your telling us that we have to come to the park, buy goodies and watch a manager and his coaches who can't do their job? That we have to support a team that is packed with players that hit under 230 and ERA of .500 and lose a 100 games a year,, and that's for what, 3 maybe 5 years? In your dreams my friend.
